These beautiful brass cufflinks are crafted from repurposed military jacket buttons. Each button is embossed with the Union Eagle and was manufactured by the Waterbury Button Company in Cheshire, Connecticut.
Meet the Artist:
Veteran and artist Shanna Rodenberg served eight years as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army. Upon returning from Afghanistan in 2005, she began to experiment with making jewelry out of spent ammunition. What began as a hobby to help adjust to civilian life has turned into a thriving career that we are thrilled to support!
Our jewelry is all handmade, so keep in mind that each piece will have its own unique character!
The brass has been polished with a light renaissance wax to hold its original color and shine longer, but because the jewelry is made from solid brass, it will develop a beautiful patina over time.
If you would like to maintain your piece's original luster, you can clean with a gentle cleanser like Flitz and polish with a soft cloth.
The product itself (cufflinks) was excellent but the packaging was poor. When I opened the shipping box, the cufflinks had left their presentation box and had been rattling around loose inside of the outer (shipping) container. It would seem to be a simple fix to secure the cufflinks inside of the shipping container in order to prevent any possible damage during shipment. Even a small amount of bubble-wrap would do the job.
Awesome! I met you at the MA women's conference. Love what you sisters are doing! Best of luck with your store in Denver. I will definitely share your brand with my sister who lives there.
